Petition to: connect the whole of the Great Ashby area to high-speed broadband as soon as possible

We the undersigned petition Stevenage Borough Council to connect the whole of the Great Ashby area to high-speed broadband as soon as possible. More details

More details from petition creator

Residents in the SG16GR are currently stuck with 1MB of broadband through their phone landlines because there are currently no (or extremely few) fibre optic cabinets on the streets to provide fibre-optic broadband.

We the undersigned request that all internet cabinets in Great Ashby are upgraded to support high-speed fibre optic broadband with a speed of at least 20MB.

We also request that the undersigned be provided with bi-weekly updates on the progress of the installations and upgrades.

Petition Rejected

This petition has been rejected because:

  • It was outside the remit or powers of Stevenage Borough Council

Additional information about this rejection:
I am sorry but Stevenage Borough Council is not a broadband provider and therefore cannot respond to your petition. There is currently a central government initiative to roll out high speed broadband and Hertfordshire County Council have set up a website to collect votes from residents to strengthen its case for this service to be provided throughout the county.
